GOP outraged at lack of nepotism in Sestak "offer"

WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. S.I. Hayakawa on Wednesday spurned a Reagan administration suggestion that if he drops out of the crowded Republican Senate primary race in California, President Reagan would find him a job.

Among Republicans seeking Hayakawa's seat are ... Maureen Reagan, the president's daughter.

Without shameless hypocrisy, what would Republicans have left.
JOHN KING: Ed Rollins to you first, have you ever tried to get somebody not to run, or to drop out and maybe entice them with something?

ED ROLLINS: We stay out of primaries, that was sort of President Reagan's goal ... our policy was stay out of primaries.
Sure it was. Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.

By golly, Dick Morris* would have had Saint Reagan impeached.

Perhaps Dick Morris and his Hannity pals don't understand that presidential advisory board positions of the type reportedly suggested to Joe Sestak aren't created by Acts of Congress, which is what a violation of the relevant federal law would require to be proven.

* That's Tea Republican rich guy Ron Johnson's inspiration.
